Softer flex is more maneuverable at slow speeds and more forgiving in general. This type of flex offers increased comfort and is great for beginner/intermediate riders and for the advanced rider who prefers a looser more skate like feel, for a freestyle practice.
Medium flex is adapted to riders that need reliable hold and support for varied terrain, for each type of practice.
Stiffer flexing boots are geared more towards advanced riders looking for more precision control at high speeds; whether it be in the park, pipe, or anywhere on the mountain.
